E-Motional Festival in Bucharest, April 12-14, 2013

Book your time to visit Bucharest in April 2013 to find out more about the Romanian contemporary dance scene and the latest developments. The closing event of the two-year European programme “E-Motional Bodies & Cities” will be taking place in Bucharest, Romania between April 12-14, 2013.

Between 2011-2013, the program has connected dance professionals from participating countries of Romania, Cyprus, Ireland, Latvia, United Kingdom, and Turkey  through a series of mobility grants, residencies, fellowships, artistic research and performance co-production and exchange (see details in dedicated pages and news sections). The project is rounding up in Bucharest with three days full of events – performances, artist talks, installation/ exhibition launch, roundtables, film screenings, networking events presented by Gabriela Tudor Foundation, the project leader, in partnership with the National Dance Centre Bucharest and the National Museum of Contemporary Arts.

Prepare yourself to:

–          Witness the results of two artistic research teams from the E-Motional partner countries;
–          Watch five performances, out of which two premieres;
–          Delve into creative video-installations dedicated to or documenting the project;

–          Network with the artists and 20 other presenters and producers from project countries, larger Europe, US and Japan;
–          Taste some Romanian wine along the road.

Our cozy space ZonaD – Serial Paradise Studio in Bucharest will gather participants for a roundtable dedicated to international artistic collaboration nowadays and various perspectives and approaches to it, to which all participants are invited to contribute with their vision and experience.

The final event program will be available late February 2013. Keep close!
